Pro Fishing Secret Tip for Catching Winter Bass in Cold Weather In this video: A lot of people ask, "How do I catch fish in the winter?", or "How do you catch fish when the water gets cold?"

Professional BASS angler/fisherman Mike "Ike" Iaconelli talks about catching winter bass with the Rapala Shad Rap. When the water gets cold, follow this secret VMC short shank treble hook tip to trick out your Shad Raps and catch those big winter bass! Customize your shad rap by modifying the hooks.

Bigger treble hooks can increase hookup percentage, neutralizes the buoyancy to help the bait suspend, and the short shank keeps the larger hooks from tabling with each other.

Use these tips along with 6lb. Berkley Trilene fluorocarbon to catch more late fall, winter and early spring largemouth and smallmouth bass.

Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Tips With Mike IaconelliIn this video: B.A.S.S. Elite Series Angler, Mike Iaconelli, shares tips for fishing Toledo Bend Reservoir in the fall with a focus on finding flats, grass edges and "matching the hatch" to catch bass as they feed heavily heading into the winter months. Check out Toledo Bend on Fishidy.

Mike is fishing a Molix Venator Double Willow Spinnerbait in Ike's Purple Sinsay color. Look for the foriage to find bass! Bass feed up in the fall before it gets really cold.

Killing Snakehead, Muskie, Pike "Trash Fish" PeckerheadsIn this video: In this halloween "spooktacular", hosts Mike "Ike" Iaconelli (Captain Kirk) and Pete Gluszek (Dr. McCoy) talk about special guest, including BASS emcee Dave Mercer. Mike gets a special IPA beer in his honor. The hot topic, killing trash fish. Is killing a species you hate (like carp, gar, bowfin) the same as controlling invasive species like the snakehead? What about killing to control population and encourage fish growth? A lot of people target largemouth and smallmouth bass when fishing, and get upset when they catch pike, muskie, catfish or other fish they call "trash fish" or "rough fish".

Iaconelli Carolina Rig Fishing 3 Tips TutorialIn this video: This video is for people who want to catch bass on the carolina rig. The carolina rig is a plastic bait fishing technique where a heavy weight is placed a foot or more ahead of the artificial plastic bait. The line between the weight and the hook is called the leader, and this line is usually a lighter test strength than the main line (going from your reel to the weight).
  1. The carolina rig weight
    • Carolina rig is about catching fish, but also about discovering the cover and structure of the body of water
    • The weight should be heavy enough to maintain contact with the bottom (Mike uses 1/2 - 1oz. VMC tungsten weights
  2. Length of the carolina rig leader
    • long leaders when cover, like grass, is high off the bottom
    • Short leaders for situations like pea gravel when the bait doesn't need to be far off the bottom
    • As a rule, the more active the fish, the longer the leader
  3. Carolina rig rod selection

Iaconelli Dropshot Fishing in 3 Steps Tutorial VideoIn this video: This video is for people who want to know how to catch bass on a dropshot rig. The dropshot rig is usually fished on light line, but is somewhat unique in that the bait (usually a small artificial plastic bait) is fished above the weight (usually a small ball weight or pencil/cylinder weight).
  1. Neutral action - don't move the bait, the bait will move, naturally
    • All bodies of water have some current that will move the bait
    • No one is completely still, even without intentionally moving, you will move the bait
  2. Sweep Hookset
    • Don't set the hook like Denny Brauer jerking a fish out of heavy cover
    • Sweep your rod to the side and step back
    • You're using small hooks, like VMC Spinshot Dropshot Hooks, you don't need the strong hookset like with a heavy gauge hook
  3. Use your electronics in deeper water
    • Turn up your sensitivity on your depth finder
    • Increase your ping speed

Iaconelli, Swindle, Avena Tips for Co-AnglersIn this video: Always fish a different bait, maybe try something in the same zone. Never try to outfish the boater with the same bait, most of the guys on the front will pick off the easy fish, go with a different bait or presentation. Maybe try a drop-shot as the non-boater.

Lake Erie Win Recap with Tackle WarehouseIn this video: Mike consistently caught 4-5 lb. smallmouth to win the tournament, and a spot in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic at the Lake Erie Open. Firstly, Ike fished the dropshot with a larger profile bait, Ike used the Berkley Havoc Flat Dawg in green pumpkin candy, when cloudy and watermelon seed in sunny. Mike used 15lb Spiderwire Fluoro-Braid, which sinks for presentations like drop shots. Ike also used an Trilene Fluorocarbon 8lb. leader and 1/0 VMC Ike Approved Wacky Hook and VMC Tungsten Drop Shot Cylinder Weight. Ike fished this rig on a 6'9" Med Light Veritas Spinning Rod and Abu Garcia 20 size Revo Premier Reel. Mike's other bait was a Rapala Ike's Custom Ink Ike's Smash Color DT 14 Crankbait. Mike fished the crankbait on 7' Abu Garcia Winch Med Cranking Rod and Abu Garcia REVO Premier Generation 3 Casting Reel 6.4:1 Gear Ratio with 12lb. Berkley Trilene Fluorocarbon.

Best Knot for Fluorocarbon with Mike IaconelliIn this video: When using fluorocarbon, like Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon, Ike likes the Improved clinch knot. When using mono, like Berkley Trilene XT or braid, like Spiderwire Stealth, Ike likes the palomar knot, probably the best overall. Lastly, when pitching or flipping with fluorocarbon or braid with a VMC Ike Approved straight shank hook, Ike likes a Snell Knot.

Finesse Pitching with VMC Pro Mike IaconelliIn this video: Use an oversized spinning reel, like the 1205560 Model Abu Garcia Revo Premier, don't overfill the spool. Pair that with a shorter (6'6") medium-heavy spinning rod, like the Abu Garcia Veritas Spinning Rod. Feather the line with your index finger to slow the line down to get a quite lure entry in difficult places. Always turn your bale over by hand to reduce line twists. Great for clear water and heavy pressure waters.
